There is a new update out. The biggest improvement seems to be to USB3 support in the Linux rescue disk.

Quote:
What's new? 5.1.5828:

Linux CD major update.
Linux Rescue CD now includes additional support for USB 3.0, restoring to RAID volumes and is built using the latest Linux 3.7 kernel.
Windows Event log viewer
A Windows Event log viewer has been added to Macrium Reflect. VSS and other events can be viewed directly to assist in backup failure troubleshooting. To launch the viewer:
1. Right click on the Macrium Reflect log tree node and select 'View Windows Events'.
2. Take the 'Other Tasks' > 'View Windows Events' menu option.

Note: Windows Events are now also appended to the VSS log file.
Bug fixes:
Failed clone reported as success
If a disk read error occurred during a clone process then the clone could report success and terminate. This has been resolved and the appropriate error is now shown.
Support tool hot key error
Launching the Macrium support tool with 'Ctrl+Shift+S' is no longer a system wide hot key.
Scheduled task edit bug
Changing a task from 'Every Day' to 'n Number of Days' could cause the task to not reflect the change. This has been resolved.
Windows PE build error
If Reflect was installed in a folder using characters outside the current code page then this could cause the Windows PE build to fail. This has been resolved.
VSS Error with some DELL systems
Some DELL systems may assign the drive letter 'W' to the DELL system recovery partition. This could cause VSS snapshot VSS_E_INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE failures. This has been resolved.
Allow dots in XML def file names
The dot character is now permitted in the xml file name.
Windows PE UEFI media ignoring the prompt for key press option
The Windows PE rescue media for GPT/UEFI systems would always prompt for a key press on startup regardless of option selected when creating the media. This has been resolved.
Logical drive image problem.
Incremental/Differential images of logical drives could create images of the wrong partition if another logical drive existed with exactly the same length in the same extended partition. This has been resolved.

I finally got a chance to try the new recovery process with v5. I had a 5Gb image. After I booted from CD, found the image and ran the recovery process, from boot to restart the whole process took maybe 9 minutes.

Thank you Macrium!

If I read that correctly, the restore took only 2 minutes and 13 seconds. The boot time for the CD one would not normally count. But you had a very small image.

Yea I included the restarts just so I didn't sound insane. And that image had what I needed, a clean install with all my DATA on my secondary drive.

I was just very impress with the new feel. I found it easier and faster than before.

Big thanks to you whs and all the rest for their continual support in this thread.

New Version 5.1.5856:

Another update to Macrium. Not much new this time.

Quote:
What's new? 5.1.5856:

Compatibility with Tablet PCs using 32 Bit UEFI boot
Reflect now supports Windows PE restoring on 32 bit UEFI boot PCs such as the Lenovo Tablet 2 series.
Warning message in log for incomplete backup sets
When creating an Incremental backup a warning message is now written to the log file if the backup set doesn't have all files in the backup target folder.
Spin up delay
If the backup target folder cannot be located when running a backup then an automatic delay of 5 seconds is initiated before retrying to allow for disks spinning up from sleep.

Bug fixes:

UEFI CD boot problem
If the 'Prompt for key press option..' was enabled when creating a UEFI booting CD then this could cause the CD not to be loaded when booting. This is a generic problem with UEFI booting media and the option is no-longer available in the rescue wizard.
Clone failure when expanding an XP partition
A disk clone could fail to complete if an XP partition is resized larger. This has been resolved.
Failure email not sent
If an incremental or differential backup failed with the message 'Failed to load image file' then failure emails may not be sent. This has been resolved
File and Folder backup mounting issue
File and Folder backups could fail to mount in Windows Explorer if the backup file is located on a mapped network share. This has been resolved
Program error
Reflect could raise a program error if a scheduled incremental backup references an xml file that has been delete or renamed. This has been resolved.
Alternative locations issue
When using 'Alternative locations' for backup target rotations a Full backup may be created when a Differential or Incremental was expected. This has been resolved.

Another new version 5.1.5870

Quote:
What's new? 5.1.5870:

Windows PE Recovery boot menu now available on 32 bit UEFI boot systems
Reflect now supports Windows PE recovery boot menu on the latest 32 bit UEFI boot tablet PCs.

Bug fixes:

Cloning progress bar not updated
During a 'forensic' clone operation the progress bar was not correctly updated. This has been resolved
Read error during clone
Some systems could report a read eror during clone operations. This has been resolved
I guess this is primarily a bug fix.
